As a senior, I was so excited for my senior portraits, but I was SO nervous that I would look awkward and unnatural because I had never posed for photos before. Because of the amazing connection I had with my senior photographer, I felt 100% comfortable during my session and loved all of my photos (which is what makes me so excited to photograph so many seniors like you every year!)!
The unique connection I have with each of my senior girls is what allows me to create beautiful, fun-filled images that you just can’t wait to share on Instagram (and your mom can’t wait to print and hang all over your home)! From my favorite locations throughout Bourbonnais and Kankakee County to photographing seniors in different states, each senior gets a fully personalized experience with me!
Girl, I get it-finding the perfect senior photographer can seem like such a challenging task. The senior experience with me is completely designed around you. That's right, girl-it's all about you! Our time together is filled with everything from outfit planning guides to sessions jammed packed with your favorite music-I’m there for it all! My favorite part of it all? The All Inclusive Elle Taylor Experience includes professional hair and makeup appointments from the BEST girls around!

"She will get in the most awkward positions, stand on chairs, and crawl into tall grass just to get the perfect angle for a great photo. She is super cooperative and caring with her senior. I have never seen someone more excited to take senior pictures, she was almost more excited than I was!! I totally recommend for every single senior to go to her for their senior pictures. Her work is extraordinary and you could not find anyone better to capture your moment!! My pictures turned out better than I ever believed, and she mde all my flaws look like perfection. Literally could NOT find anyone better."

"As I was trying to decide who was going to do my senior pictures, I knew Elle would be the perfect option. I actually heard of Elle through a friend, and I then saw the pictures she took on instagram. She does absolutely amazing work and is the sweetest ever!! Elle was so flexible with my sessions and knew the perfect spots to take my pictures. I would highly recommend Elle to take your senior pictures! She makes you feel comfortable during every session and pose. My favorite part was having the music play throughout the session and just laughing the entire time! You never have to worry about a pose because she will make you look natural the entire time!"
